Let's try something with some immediate relevancy. This is the sub prime tournament. It has two phases:
Part 1. Banks, Originate As Much Loans as Possible, Regardless of Credit (Hey, Investors Will Eat that Sh!t up). Borrowers, Rack it Up, Baby (They're Practically Giving It Away!?)
Part 2. Get Bailed Out by the Deep Pockets (That Sh!t is Toxic... sell, sell, sell / Mortgage reformation)
Here's how it will work. Each player will play 4 matches of 5 player, standard, flat, fog
and will be randomly matched up with other players into four brackets that will play: 1 game on Madness
!, 1 on Prohibition Chicago
, 1 on San Francisco
, 1 on NYC
(the american dream in a few select bubble locations). This is where loan out your points - every time you win, you go deeper in debt borrowing points form the losers, getting more cash.... while the bankers get more fees, bigger bonuses, and so forth.
At the end of the first round of games, the players will be ranked according to who has "lent" out the most capital and who has "borrowed" the most. The 4 biggest "balance sheets", both positive & negative, will be sent for a bail out to the US Senate
. There, the the biggest point winners and losers will slog it out. It will be 8 player, standard, sunny *UPDATE*: CARDS TO BE SET BY VOTE OF FINALISTS**
(about time), as the bankers with their toxic loans fight for a bail out package against the "homeowners" who resist sending their tax dollars to wall street along with their monthly mortgage payments. Who will win? Only one way to find out... winner of the senate match will walk away with all the $$$ and the tournament win.
Entry is open to freemium, but you must have all four slots open for the first round as games will go simultaneous (you will get a 1 week warning when sign ups get close to filling so to clear your slate).
I am going to initially set this for 20 players. Here is what it will look like... despite all the hub-bub, this is a really simple tournament:
